Dunedin


Hi Guys.It was weird to leave all the guys at St. Pauls, it was great to be with them. We have spent the last week in Dunedin in the south island with Dily's sister and Family. (The photo is taken on the local beech in Dunedin) It's been great to catch up and for me to meet Geoff , Rodney, Shona and Naomi. We spent the first couple of days just hanging out , which was great. Yesterday ( Thursday 6th ) we went out to one of the local peninsulas and saw the wild albatrosses and penguins. To see an albatross is quite rare, but we had one fly right over our head ! I was standing on the cliff looking out and jokingly said " Look Albatross" to the crowd who were hoping to see one. Next thing the guide said your right, here comes one ! It was massive ; wingspan of 3 meters and a body about the size of Ethan. Great to see. On Sunday we travel to Wanaka for a few days, so we will post form there. Hope all is well with you guys ?

hey der family jones...

listened to ya on webcast Dunkee...'Hello, I'm Irish...!' - not sure I was best pleased...I could tell you weren't using A5 pages and it was sooooo much longer than 5 minutes - the CoI has only got 22 more weeks to knock that out of you! Enjoyed hearing you....the world is a small place eh...some Dub is speaking in NZ and some nordy is listening to it in Rathfarnham...the land of your upbringing!

sounds like you guys are having a great time - enjoy the next few weeks...Tom sent me a breakdown of what I have to do on placement...you've probably been sent it as well - just in time eh!!

anyway - i am down in the land of the Dubs on Wed 2 August and have arranged to meet up with Moroney...I know you'll be suffering with jetlag but so will he so if you want to meet up that'ld be great...

love to Dilys and Ethan
